Re: Daniel Bouju XO Empereur

Thanks to a generous friend I have a sample of the XO to compare against your notes ( :D ) and it sounds like you nailed it. The transition from sweet to dry is an interesting trait that doesn't have much in common with any of the other non Bouju cognacs I have tried. The sweetness in front is a won...

Re: Daniel Bouju Extra

So the dry wood infused with fruit is what is called rancio? I have never found a good description of that term until now. Thanks. The discrepancy between the nose and the palate has been evident in every 40% Cognac I have tried to date. Probably less so in the two Bouju's actually. To me it always ...

Daniel Bouju Extra

Daniel Bouju Extra 40% On the Nose, when this is first poured I get a lovely assertive juicy grape note. Give it some air time and some warmth from the hand and it gently morphs into a fruit basket on a bed of hay featuring plum, cantaloupe and fresh mountain grass. There is some wood and a whiff of...

Re: Daniel Bouju Tres Vieux Brut de Fut

I always wonder whether my notes and scores are skewed a bit, and they may well be, but I always feel more confident that they are broadly applicable when people who have little familiarity (and even less investment) really go for the stuff, too. It's not important that you try and apply your notes...

Re: Woodford Reserve Distillery

the aromas were INCREDIBLE!!!! Don't you just love the smell inside a rick house? Yum. You have got me motivated to try the Double Oaked. Does it have any of that faint copper penny taste that shows up in the regular Woodford? If you ever go to KBD in Bardstown ask them to show you the barrel old d...
